    LHey all, i just posted this up in the LG forum, but thought i'd add it here as well. Hopefully some of you might get some use out of it.



    I dont know if this is the best way to do this or not, But this is how i've done it with my vx6000. If anyone knows a better way to do it, let me know.

    first step, download something like
    sound forge that will let you convert your mp3 to wav files.

    crop down the music file to what you want the ringer to be. I dont know what the max length is that the phones will accept, but I can do a 10 second clip on my vx6000 with no problems.

    once you've gotten the mp3 cropped to the seletion you want, convert it to a mono file and change it to 8,000hz. (in soundforge, choose the 'resample" option from 'process' tab.

    you should now have a MONO cropped file at 8,000hz. You can go ahead and save it now.

    now you need to convert the file to .qcp
    you can use qualcomm's converter here: http://www.cdmatech.com/solutions/products/purevoice_download_sdk.jsp
    (drag and drop your .wav file onto the pvconv.exe file)
    (The vx6000 might be able to play mp3's as well - but qcp is what the phones save audio files as some i'm assuming its the native format for verizon phones.

    So once you have your made qcp file, you'll need to manually change the extension to .midi (even though its not a midi file, verizon will strip any sound attachments to your phone unless its a .midi file)

    now if you have a vzwpix.com account, you can upload this file to that and then send it to your phone, or just regular email and send it as an attachment. (yournumber@vzwpix.com)

    check your phone, it should say new message- and you'll hear it play your new file. Now save the sound file and do with it whatever you want.

    hope this helps

    Do you have to pay a fee ($0.10) to send this to your phone?

    Great thread Vspec. Works on my vx7000 fine. Quality's a little low, but that's ok. I was able to resample at 11025 at around 10-12 seconds and it worked fine as well, but I probably won't be able to have as many ringtones. Thanks again!

    Guess it doesn't work for my phone. When I go to preview it, it makes the phone restart.

    cant hear it

    When I open the file it is REALLY loud and distorted, and then when i save it to my rings, it becomes so quiet that you can barely hear it...anyone know what this is from?

    Works for me

    I use cooledit for my audio. Maybe make sure it's saved as a windows PCM .wav

    some audio editing software automatically puts in "markers" in the wav file, possibly it's causing problems for some. (soundforge is famous for that)

    I have managed to send the file as a QCP to my phone and it plays, but I am unable to "Assign" it as a Ringer. It was saved at 8000 Hz and converted (tried assigning as mid, 3gp, and qcp) to QCP, but my phone will NOT accept it as a ringer. Any ideas???
    Thanks!

    Solution to all ur problems

    well most people can get the song on to the phone but it is quiet.... heres was what i predicted.... when u force it onto speakerphone.. it is a lot louder... now if u get those songs and set them as ur ringtones and force into speakerphone mode it will be louder.. i just tested it and it worked...
